A umbrella term for describing ‘resources’ that could prove to be useful in helping you deal or cope with a specific situation or set of circumstances. We like to group resources into four main categories: personal, social, physical and environmental as illustrated below:
In simple terms, a resource is anything that can help to reduce the burden or increase your ability to deal with a situation. Our ability to deal and cope with, adapt to and overcome setbacks is heavily influenced by the resources we can access and use at a given moment in time.
Gaining access to and looking after our resources as best we can is an important strategy for building and maintaining resilience.
